Azerbaijan.The game below was bought as a "Russian" edition because Azerbaijan belonged to the East bloc untill the end of 1991.

However the game was manufactured in the capital city Baku so that is why it is much more interesting to consider it now a Monopoly-like edition from independant Azerbaijan state.

Considering the low standard of living in this country it is doubtful  Parker/Hasbro is marketing its games here.

Everything shown on the property deeds is also on the concerning board space. The card sizes varies  (ca.65x44 mm), most probably meaning they were cut out of sheets by hand. The Surprise cards (in the center of each side where the stations usually are) are represented by an octagonal star, the Message cards by a outlined bird.
The 7 banknotes are one-sided color printed on white paper. The denominations in roebles are  resp: 100 - 500 -1000 - 2000 - 5000 - 10000 and 50000. The houses are blue discs (diam.15 mm); the hotels are red discs. The 6 tokens are colored pawns.
Both white dice attract attention because the are larger than usual (13x13x13 mm) and their pips are drilled, uncolored holes.
